The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Los Angeles District said in its latest release that the Port of Long Beach (POLB) has requested renewal of Regional General Permit (RGP) No. 28 for routine maintenance dredging and disposal, and routine maintenance of in-water structures and facilities.

The current RGP 28 will expire on November 13, 2018. The applicant is requesting a revised project description with respect to methods and volumes.

The mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program is to protect the Nation’s aquatic resources, while allowing reasonable development through fair, flexible and balanced permit decisions. USACE evaluates permit applications for essentially all construction activities that occur in the Nation’s waters, including wetlands.

During the permit process, USACE considers the views of other Federal, state and local agencies, interest groups, and the general public.

According to the official USACE’s announcement, the comment period for the latest RGP is August 28 – September 28, 2018.
